Hello Gita, Thank you for the question.
Trichiasis is an abnormal condition of eyelash growth. that is, grow inward or in other words enter the eye. Eyelash growth that enters the eye can cause irritation to the cornea and conjunctiva and the inside of the eyelid. Consider the following picture:
Because trichiasis can cause eye irritation, sufferers can experience symptoms of red eye, watery eyes, and eyes becoming sensitive to light. The cause of trichiasis is not always known with certainty. However, there are several factors that cause a person more at risk of trichiasis, namely:
eye infections, such as trachoma, shingles
inflammation of the eye that lasts for a long time
Eyelashes that grow next to the eyes are not necessarily caused by trichiasis, this condition may be a normal condition. To determine the cause of your complaint, you should consult with an eye specialist first. The doctor will ask for your complaints and examine your eyes before determining the next treatment. This condition cannot be treated alone at home. If it is caused by trichiasis, the doctor will remove the eyelashes that experience trichiasis, but if the number of lashes that experience trichiasis is quite a lot, the doctor will perform a surgical procedure to remove the eyelashes or to change the direction of the growing eyelashes.
Hopefully this information helps you.
